|13rian||Well the k2 is a great board! But feels lik a wet piece of cartboard, great for rail an buters tho.. Iv gt obe for messing around on myself..The intresting thing abuot the www is that u can drop 4-5 cm om ur normel leght and still have the feel of the board ud normly ride.. So if ud get one that is ur size, would ride lik a board 5. M longer but would flexx more an weigh tless|

|jmacphee9||the k2 is a great park board, im not sure, its flex with your weight could very well be a decent all mt board. is there a particular reason you are ruling out a womens board? just because it says womens? if you want the best board for your body type it would be a womens to be honest...instead of using an all mt baord as a really stiff free ride, or a park board as an all mt board.|

You don't think a 148 is too big for me? I was side by side to that Custom 148 & it was near the top of my head.
I'm primarily going to be freeriding
jmac, i'll definitely check out the k2 www, any opinions on that board? However, I'm gonna have to pass on the women's board. LOL

i 148 would be a nice size for more free ride, if you plan on park i would look smaller, its pretty hard to find mens boards in that size range...
k2 www comes in a 145 and 148. jib boards are really your best shot at getting a smaller board, and at your weight im not sure how flexy they would be.
or romes womans boards tend to be graphic wise fairly close to there mens line..

|RidePowder||well this time of season probably. You were right, Im not a Burton fan on any level, I avoid burton products and burton owned companies products but Id go with the custom n a 144|

I'm really not into the 'I love or I hate Burton' hype.. Not saying u r Ride.
I'm going to stick with the sport so I the right deck.. Not just any board.
So I stopped by another store today after work & the guy was telling me to get a Custom 148
Is Burton going to be the only choice I have now? Arrghhh!

|Mpagano9||While I'm not impressed with many of burton's products, the custom and custom X are both excellent planks. As Ride pointed out, it's a good board that will allow you to move from beginner through intermediate and into advanced. This or a similar board is a good way to go if you think you'll be persistent with the sport and quickly move out of the learning stages.|

a little but, Im not a burton fan, but on sierra snowboard you can get a burton clash 144 for 149.98 in 144. its a beginner board so not something youll want to stay on for too long.
or a burton custom in a 144 for 250. considering its a higher end board Id go with that since its a board youll be able to keep longer and use as a progressing rider and not just a beginner. both boards are 50% off at sierra right now and both are in 144. but there is only 1 custom left

Isn't the Blunt more of a park/freestyle board??
